What Makes a Good Horror Theme Song?

Halloween is getting closer! 😮

This week, I wanted to share with you three of the horror movie theme songs that I think are the spookiest.

For a horror movie to be good, it has to be really scary and super creepy. For a horror movie to be even better, it should have a theme song that gives people goosebumps whenever they hear it!

Here are 3 theme songs from creepy horror movies that give me the goosebumps.

1. The Psycho theme song, by Bernard Herrmann:

Can anyone listen to this creepy song without thinking of that dreadful shower scene? o_O

2. A Nightmare on Elm Street theme song, by Charles Bernstein:

The song makes the listener feel like he/she is in a boiler room and Freddy is going to jump out at any moment! :/

3. The Friday the 13th theme song, by Harry Manfredini:

The “ch ch ch” throughout the song makes the listener think about the way Jason sneaks around before he strikes! 😮

What do you think are the creepiest horror theme songs?
